I have two working network connections: One connection is for a wired ethernet card adapter and the other is for a wireless usb adapter.
Both connections work fine when used separately, but when both are enabled, the wireless connection doesn't work.
The wired connection obtains its IP address via DHCP through gateway 192.168.1.1 - The DHCP range for this router is
192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.149
The wireless connection obtains its IP address via DHCP through gateway 192.168.6.1 - The DHCP range for this router (Android phone acting as wireless hotspot) is
192.168.6.106 - 192.168.6.XXXwith 8 allowed connections. (I'm also having trouble figuring out how to determine which IP addresses are reserved for DHCP when using this hotspot - here's another question I posted about this problem)
If both connections are enabled, the computer will have two separate IP addresses. For example, the wired connection will be assigned
192.168.1.101 and the wireless connection will be assigned
There isn't a direct conflict of IP address obviously, but I can't get internet access until I disable the wired connection.
Does anyone know what the problem is here and how I can fix it without having to disable and enable the wired connection every time I need to switch between the two adapters?
